What was the leading podcasting event for the last 4 years, the New Media Expo, has now become part of the premier expo on blogging... the BlogWorld & New Media Expo. This year the event will be hosted at the Las Vegas convention center from October 15th to the 17th and will features all the heavy hitters from the worlds of blogging, podcasting and social media. For as little as $75 (and up to $1200) you can start to be a part of the event that is sure to be a smash hit.
Why Should You Attend?
If you are into podcasting and blogging, this is the leading even for many reasons. Not only do they have killer tracks focusing on audio and video podcasting, focused community building, and the fundamentals of social media... they also have a huge exhibition floor, panels and discussions from leaders in blogging and podcasting (including Robert Scoble, CC Chapman, Chris Pirillo and dozens more) and the opportunity to connect with some of the greatest minds in social media from around the world.
Will Podcast Alley Be There?
Regretfully, no. I was asked to sit a few panels but had to decline. You know I love podcasting and blogging as much as (or even more than) every other nerd out there, but unfortunately the timing did not work out. I am sad, but while you suckers are listening to Guy Kawasaki, Leo Laporte, Cali Lewis and Chris Brogan, I will be on vacation with the people I love and admire most... my family.
